Tuesday’s Trends: Mason Jars

Hello, Fabulistas! This week I wanted to hit on the trend that is really popular with DIY-ers. Mason Jars are such useful little containers. They’re classic, versatile, and I’m always finding new ways people are using them! This post is less about what you can buy outright to stay on trend, but how you can really get creative!

Simple vases

There’s something so chic and simple about a fresh bouquet of flowers you picked from your garden. Put them in a mason jar and you have a homemade look that really makes guests feel welcome. I love them used in this table setting. How summer-y!

Cocktail glasses

The season of outdoor entertaining is upon us! I don’t like to use my nice wine and champagne glasses, though, when I’m entertaining outdoors. It just seems that my servingware is more prone to accidents then. So I’m bookmarking this idea for serving fizzy cocktails out of these jars. Plus, those striped paper straws are fab!

Chic planters 

If you’re an apartment dweller, like most New Yorkers, you can appreciate a space-saving indoor gardening idea like this one. This mason jar planter project looks so rustic and it belongs in an old farmhouse. What a trendy way to bring a little country into the city!

Stunning chandelier

You know that I’m all for fabulous lighting! I’m constantly on the hunt for new and exciting light fixtures to share with you, my readers, and my clients! I’ve seen lots of these mason jar chandeliers pop up on Pinterest. I can see this in a masculine loft with exposed brick.
